The word ‘authority’ carries incredible weight. Some people love authority while others run from it. It can be used for good and it can be abused for all incredible harm. The definition literally means: ‘the power or right to give orders, make decisions, and enforce obedience.’ Jesus claims authority over all things. Where does this authority come from, and how does surrendering to the authority of Jesus actually provide us the greatest freedom and joy? In ‘By What Authority’ (Mark 10-11) we’ll see how the first events of Passover week point us to Jesus’ authority and what it means to trust that His authority is for our good.
